This is the best tasting coconut sugar on the planet! Our organic coconut sugar is carefully created by rural artisans in Indonesia, and your purchase supports their traditional farming methods and helps to provide their families a high standard of living.
Coconut sugar is lower glycemic than regular white sugar, and offers trace minerals. Unlike other sugars, our coconut sugar is not highly processed. Instead, the sap from the flowers of coconut trees is boiled gently to generate a sweet-tasting sugar without heavy refinement or processing. Thus, our coconut sugar is a naturally harvested food.
Our coconut sugar contains 16 essential amino acids, including glutamine, which is an important component of numerous processes in the body. Glutamine is converted to glutamic acid in the body, which helps to keep your brain and heart functioning properly. Coconut sugar also has a lower glycemic index than table sugar. The glycemic index is an indication of how much a food affects your blood glucose level. High glycemic index foods put more demand on your liver to produce insulin, and can increase your risk of obesity. Coconut sugar contains high levels of vitamins and minerals, like zinc, iron, potassium, and magnesium. It also contains inositol, which has been shown to be effective in treating depression and panic disorder.
How to Use Coconut Sugar
Use as a 1:1 replacement for regular white cane sugar during cooking, in beverages, and desserts. You can use our organic coconut sugar in place of regular sugar anywhere you normally use table sugar. You can use it as a sweetener in hot beverages, or with hot milk or milk substitute. In any recipes that require sugar, you can use coconut sugar on a one to one basis. It tastes great and will make the recipe healthier!
Did You Know?
Coconut Sugar is also known as Palm Sugar.
Due to their great ecological tolerance, the cultivation of coconut trees is highly sustainable. Most coconut trees have a lifespan of 75-80 years and an output of 25-30 coconuts per year.
Coconut trees help to stabilize land from erosion and increase soil fertility and water conservation. Coconut sugar production is year-round, not seasonal like cane sugar (where the plants have to be removed and re-planted each season).
Ingredients: Organic crystallized coconut sap.
